For Sale

Mantis Heavy Lift Hexacopter


Mantis Heavy Lift Hexacopter from Averticalview.com (airframe only - no motors, ESCs, or electronics). Factory assembled. Carbon fiber and G10 construction, with 3-axis belt drive gimbal suitable for full size DSLRs. Custom battery mounting plates installed. Only a few flights on this hexacopter and it is in perfect condition. Suitable for Avroto 2814 or similar motors, 11-12 inch props, and 2 5S 5000-6000 mah packs. Approx. 950mm width. This is a heavy lift beast and will handle camera and FPV equipment easily. Heading a different hobby direction, so selling. $1700 invested - - selling for $850 shipped (CONUS). First two pictures show completed hex for illustration purposes, next two pictures show airframe only, which is for sale. Add motors, ESCs, and flight controller and you can be in the air quickly. This is a superior platform for aerial photography.

Airframe and Gimbal are from Averticalview.com, and they did the assembly. Gimbal is 3-axis and includes servos. All three axis are belt driven and very smooth. Bare airframe + gimbal weighs 4.76 lbs. With Avrotos, 11 inch props, and 2P 5S 5000's, it easily lifts a full size DSLR and FPV equipment. Flight time about 11 minutes.
